Euro 2024: The Best Places in Brighton to Watch Football This Summer

It looks set to be a fascinating summer of sport here in the UK with plenty of top class action to look forward to across June, July and August. Although many sports fans will spend at least a couple of weeks re-immersing themselves in the world of surfing, archery, break dancing and table tennis during the 2024 Paris Olympics, Euro 2024 is likely to dominate the headlines and become one of the major talking points of the summer months.

Euro 2024 gets underway on June 14th at the Fussball Arena in Munich. Scotland, featuring Brighton’s Billy Gilmour, will kick off the tournament against host nation Germany, who have called up Albion’s Pascal Gross to their preliminary squad. This will be followed by a relentless group stage schedule consisting of at least three matches per day. With both England and Scotland having qualified for the event, there will be plenty of interest in the fortunes of both sides, and with the Three Lions having been priced up as the favourites in many of the tournament betting markets, there will be plenty of expectation on Gareth Southgate’s side.

Every single game of the tournament is televised in the UK and there will be plenty of opportunities to watch these matches at various venues across Brighton. Nothing can rival the euphoria of watching England or Scotland cruise to victory alongside your family and friends, and if you’re looking for a suitable venue to enjoy every single kick, then you’ll be delighted to know that there are plenty of accessible options within the BN1 postcode.

Pier Nine by Grosvenor Casino

Back in 2020, a new entertainment hub called Pier Nine opened in Brighton on Grand Junction Road. Construction on the old art deco cinema got underway in 2019 at the cost of £5.2million and this new 24-hour venue now offers something for everyone.

By day, this is primarily, but not exclusively, a modern co-working space, yet by night, this venue offers significantly more. As well as a private cinema and karaoke space, Pier Nine boasts two casinos, several bars and a couple of modern restaurants.

Crucially, they boast a state-of-the-art HD TV system and they plan to show every match from Euro 2024 this summer. Pier Nine is just a five minute walk from the City Centre so it is ideally positioned as a meeting place for those who wish to meet up for a few drinks, play a few rounds of their favourite table games and watch the full 90 minutes.

Nothing beats the thrill of stepping up to the table with your mates and deciding where to place your chips, or perhaps even testing your skills by entering the dedicated poker room. Those who wish to practice beforehand will be able to fu hone their skills by visiting one of the many reputable online casino sites which offer a fully immersive experience. This may even enable you to prepare for the real thing and hopefully impress your mates!

New visitors will also get a chance to claim a Grosvenor bonus and get started with house money. If you win big, the drinks will be on you for the remainder of Euro 2024!

Grand Central Pub

If you are arriving into Brighton by train this summer and you’re planning to watch one of the 51 matches taking place in Germany, then you simply must visit the iconic and historic Grand Central Pub.

The pub promises an electrifying atmosphere for every England game throughout the tournament and if you need to take a quick breather at half time, then why not visit the stunning roof terrace.

This popular hotspot does get fairly busy whenever the sun is shining, however, in order to avoid disappointment, you can now book your spot and reserve a table via their website.

The Lion and Lobster

If you’re craving an old-fashioned boozer, then the Lion and Lobster could be right up your street. As well as regular open mic nights and succulent sunday roasts, this pub is also a terrific venue for watching live sport.

With every Euro 2024 match being screened here, you won’t miss a single kick of the tournament and you can book your table weeks ahead of kick off.

Foodies are also well-catered for at this particular venue with the signature cheeseburger proving a hit with punters. There are also several tasty bar snacks and these can be washed down mid-match with one of the copious craft ales or lagers.


If you’re searching for something a little more lively, then Walkabout could be the ideal stop off. The popular sports bar is a very affordable venue which welcomes large groups of supporters through its doors. With over 20 HD screens to pick from, you won’t be short of options when it comes to finding your perfect vantage point and you’ll be able to watch every single game whilst sampling the Aussie-themed snacks and trying just a few of the extensive selection of popular beverages.

Euro2024 England FanPark (Round of 16 Onwards)

4TheFans launched six immersive countrywide events ahead of the 2022 World Cup in Qatar and they were deemed a huge success by the fans who visited 18 months ago. Brighton’s Fan Park will be back ahead of the Round of 16 this summer with supporters (hopefully) able to cheer on England’s quest for European glory.

As well as a raucous atmosphere, visitors who pre-book tickets can expect giveaways, DJ sets and guest appearances from football legends. During the last international tournament, there were appearances from Tony Cottee, David Stockdale and Mark Lawrensen!

Tickets are fairly affordable and its central location allows you to easily meet your mates ahead of the big game.
